Based on Khaled Hosseini’s international best-selling novel, The Kite Runner is a tender and heart-wrenching tale of two childhood friends, whose lives are torn apart.
This powerful story, which stars David Ahmad as Amir, is a haunting tale of friendship which spans cultures and continents.
It follows one man’s journey to confront his past and find redemption.
The Kite Runner begins in Afghanistan when the country is on the verge of war and two childhood friends are about to be torn apart.
It’s a beautiful afternoon in Kabul and the skies are full of the excitement and joy of a kite flying tournament.
But neither Hassan nor Amir can foresee the terrible incident which will shatter their lives forever.
As the world changes around them and their lives move further apart, this emotional production charts the connected path of two individuals that fate knots tragically and tightly together.
The book was the first novel by Hosseini, an Afghan-American author, and was published in 2003 selling more than seven million copies.
It was made into a film in 2007 and the same year was adapted for the stage by Matthew Sangler with its first performance at San Jose State University. It had its European premiere in Nottingham.
While in the West End, The Kite Runner was described as a “gripping and beautiful play” which received a host of five-star reviews and audience acclaim.
The play runs from Monday until Saturday.
